Adobe Creative Cloud

New Tools Bridge The Gap Between Designers & Developers

In an age where businesses rely on creative, unique, one-of-a-kind digital experiences to differentiate their brands and connect with customers, creative and development teams are under pressure to quickly produce high-impact experiences to meet growing demands. Tools however, are often siloed, and don’t always work well together.

Teamwork between designers and developers is made difficult when your design team lives in Adobe Creative Cloud and your developers and product managers are in collaboration tools like Atlassian’s Jira to manage projects. How do we bring these two separate worlds together?

Enter Mixin for Adobe Creative Cloud & Jira, by 6kites, an integration built to streamline the designer to developer workflow across these popular tools. Designers can attach assets to user stories and tasks in Jira from a panel in Photoshop CC, InDesign CC or Illustrator CC directly so the latest revisions are immediately available to developers.

The new Jira Software cloud app by 6kites, launched at the Atlassian Summit last week, adds to a growing ecosystem of integrations built on the Adobe Creative Cloud platform, connecting creative workflows with the project management and collaboration tools that enterprises large and small use daily. Empower your design and development teams to iterate faster and with more precision to meet those crazy deadlines with new apps like Mixin.

    As of September 25, 2017. with only 3 active installs of this product on the Atlassian ecosystem, the plugin has failed to pass the first step of Jira Authorization.

    these guys did a great job and it works flawlessly

    let’s keep hopes up that Adobe integration solutions have the same standard of QA as the entire Creative Suite by Adobe.
